While searching KS i came across this interesting 28mm skirmish game set in 1970's New York, its called "New York Bop" by Ghetto Miniatures.

The miniatures are very nice looking and capture the look of 1970's New York gangs, there are 4 gangs on offer with more planned, each gang is comprised of 8 members with various different weapons and skills. The game can be played in one off games and it can also be played as part of a campaign

There are pledge levels from £5(single mini) - £115(4 gangs,printed rulebook,fan pack,exclusive KS mini,unlocked stretch goals inc)
There is also a £400 create your own character pledge

Sample of the rules:

http://www.ghettominiatures.co.uk/Kick_Starter/NYB_RULES_sample_V1.pdf

"The year is 1974 and the streets of New York are filled with pimps and their hoes, the subway is a crime filled haven and unemployment forces young New Yorkers into a life of debauchery and violence" *

"New York Bop is easy to learn and offers lots of fun between friends and enemies alike. It will immerse you in 1970’s New York, where you will fight your gang of Boppers in a one off game or as part of a larger Campaign" *

"Each gang member will have a number of Characteristics that will help them to beat down their enemies" *

"The Roster cards are designed like 1970’s baseball cards" *

"The rules will be a fully coloured book with loads of illustrations and photographs" *

* From the campaign page

It came close but unfortunately it didnt fund, hopefully they will have a re-launch at some point, rectifying their first time mistakes

What happens to the money received when the project doesn't fund, do you still make what product you can and send out whatever was unlocked to people or is it refunded?

KickStarter does not take any money until the end of the project, that is as long as the project has hit the funding total! if the target is not met no money will be taken, i believe Indegogo works differently by taken the money upfront but refunds if the project does not reach its goal
